Student Success Stories
"My name is Vaseekaraan Vijey. I did my pharmacy technician course at Torrance Adult School (TAS) in the Fall of 2016 with Mrs.Leticia Wang. I completed my pharmacy technician externship at Walgreens in Torrance. I got admitted to the pharmacy program at Touro University, California with all the pre-pharmacy prerequisites and pharmacy externship experience. The first two years of the pharmacy program consist of a didactic portion. After that, I did 11 clinical rotations at various pharmacy settings over the last two years. I could literally write a book about the pharmacy school journey. I also acquired a pharmacy intern position in an inpatient pharmacy, where I did a rotation. I truly believe the Walgreen externship via TAS helped me get this position. The basics I learned at TAS were helpful during the didactic portion, community pharmacy rotations, and intern jobs. In summary, this journey consists of many obstacles, failures, long hours, and sacrifices but it is all worth it in the end. I like to conclude with two things. Every long journey starts with a small step, and treat every place you do rotation or externship as a job interview. I hope this will inspire current TAS pharmacy students who are considering pharmacy school in the future. Thank you TAS, We did it!"
"I was homeless, out of hope and beaten down by financial obstacles before enrollment. Torrance Adult School is affordable, the classes are reasonably sized so there is a lot of one on one time with the instructors plus tutoring and they also do an excellent job preparing you for the national exam. Thanks to this Medical Assistant program, I am now purchasing a new home and enjoying a stable life long career as a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant. I feel blessed to have found this program and will be forever grateful to everyone who made this dream a reality!”
"My husband found Torrance Adult School (TAS) on Google, because my previous school stopped offering online classes. I needed the flexibility of online learning because I was working and taking ESL classes at El Camino College (ECC). At TAS, Ms. Nieves advised me on the classes I need to pass the GED. Mr. Chavez referred me to Ms. Estes' Government class. Ms. Estes encouraged me to take the Childcare Providers program with TAS and ECC. At the ECC Expo, I met with Sylvia and Marny from Childcare Careers. They offered me a job as a Spanish & English Assistant Teacher! I have 20 years of experience working at my church's children's department, so I was thrilled to get the job! Thank you TAS - especially Ms. Estes - for always motivating me. I recommend TAS because they not only motivated me, but also offered online classes and free ESL & Childcare Providers classes. Thank you to Ms. Nieves, Mr. Chavez, Ms. Mori, Ms. Razavi, and Mr. Chang for helping me!
"I passed my U.S. citizenship interview! I am so happy and grateful for your class as well as the instructional assistant who helped me. Your class was so helpful. I was reading material from your class to prepare for my citizenship interview, even though I took your class 2 years ago."
"15 years ago, I emigrated from Mexico to the U.S. In 2019, I came to TAS with the ultimate dream of becoming a nurse. I had so much motivation and completed class after class. Then in March 2020, the pandemic hit - but that didn't stop me. I continued my courses online, and eventually took the HiSET in 2021 amd was one of the first to earn my HSE Certification during the pandemic. One month later, I earned my High School Diploma! After TAS, I went to Healthcare Career College to earn my CNA Certification. Now, I work as a CNA at a nursing home while attending LA Harbor College to become a Registered Nurse. I hope my story will inspire other students to never give up, adn reach for their career and educational goals. You can do it!"
